The Harn works with schools and community groups to display art in various non-curated spaces within the museum.
Artists Sandra Murphy-Pak and Michel Rae Varisco each create work in response to the impact that ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) has on their lives. Murphy-Pak’s journey creating art without the use of her hands has led her to explore bold colors and forms that reflect her inner universe; while Varisco’s caregiving journey led her to an expressive pictorial language composed of vibrant small-scale patterns and symbols. Presented with the UF Center for Arts in Medicine; supported by the UF Creative B program.
